I wrote that when I was abroad in Italy–and I don’t want to devalue the song–for a songwriting contest. I was trying to write the perfect pop song."
Darren Criss on writing “Not Alone.” (x)
I just really like how meaningful this song is, and how Darren didn’t even realize how powerful it was—how powerful it would be—when he was writing it.

And they also have this shrine, to like Darren Criss set up in the faculty hallway. Which is … kinda funny now that you think about it! Because he was the one who like, missed class all the time and was always sick and would come to class with like a blanket wrapped around himself like “*cough cough* eugh I’m sorry, I’m sorry I haven’t done my essay today, but I’m *so* sick”. But we all loved him. We love Darren!! Because he’s so hot."

I found this at the Santa Monica Pier in a shop. Check out the meaning of his name, guys. Yep i flipped out right there in the store.
Every time I come home, I do my perfect day. I’m not going to give away all the details and spoil it, but it usually involves going to my favorite sandwich place. If you know me, you know where I’m talking about, and I’ll see you there soon. Ocean Beach is kind of a Zen place for me, as cold and foggy and gross as it can be sometimes. I have many fond memories of going there with friends and walking for miles and talking. It’s a very therapeutic, baptismal place to get rid of things, to talk things out. If my life were some cheap novel, the beach would be a blatant literary device to carry the theme of peace and cathartic revelation and all that. The beach would be the thing you write a paper about after reading the book."
